Now that the football season is finished, it’s time to finally concentrate on the bowls.
Merrigum Bowls Club’s opening day was a great social success and all players enjoyed the afternoon.
President John welcomed everyone and wished them all the best for the coming season.
Winners for the afternoon were John Firmer, Ken Phillips and Pat Hubble.
Pennant practice is held every Thursday at 4pm. The club hopes to see you there.
Meals start on Thursday, October 5 at 6pm, when the club will also host a group from Hill Top Golf and Country Club who will play social bowls with us and join us for dinner.
It will take the form of a practice match.
